Dhaka given 5 Unesco certificates for Bangabandhu’s March 7 speech
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) has sent five certificates to Bangladesh endorsing the inscription of the historic March 7 speech given by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971. Unesco recognized the speech, which the Father of the Nation delivered to an estimated crowd of two million people gathered at Ramna Racecourse in Dhaka, as part of the world’s documentary heritage on October 30. The speech announced a civil disobedience movement during the escalating tensions with West Pakistan, and has been included in the Memory of the World International Register maintained by Unesco. The prime minister’s press secretary, Ihsanul Karim, told reporters on Wednesday that the Paris-based Unesco has sent a letter to this end to the Bangladesh ambassador to France.

The letter says the inclusion of the speech in the Memory of the World Register reflects its “exceptional value”, and signifies that it should be “protected for the benefit of humanity”. Ihsanul Karim said on Wednesday that the certificates will be handed over to five organizations which made outstanding contributions to achieving Unesco recognition of Bangabandhu’s March 7 speech. The organizations are Information and Communication Technology Division, Bangladesh Betar, Department of Film and Publications, Liberation War Museum, and Bangladesh Film Archive. Unesco sent the certificates, signed by its director general, to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through Bangladesh Ambassador to France and Permanent Delegate of Bangladesh to Unesco, Kazi Imtiaz Hossain.
